Bouguereau, William-Adolphe Biography


William-Adolphe Bouguereau was a French academic painter, as a young man, Bouguereau put himself through the Ecole des Beaux-Arts by keeping books for a wine merchant and colouring lithographic labels for a local grocer. In his spare time, late in the evening, he created drawings from memory. This diligence and discipline resulted in an extraordinarily productive artistic life. Bouguereau produced more than seven hundred finished artworks and achieved a remarkable level of public acclaim and financial success. The tenderness with which he portrayed children and domestic scenes, his technical skill and passion for the classics, and his love of rich color are hallmarks of Bouguereau's exquisite oil paintings.
